The upcoming discussion will update you about the differences between aerobic and anaerobic respiration.
1. It occurs in majority of organisms.
2. Oxygen is used.
3. It always releases CO2.
4. It generated water.
5. It releases entire energy available in glucose as it is fully oxidized.
6. Aerobic respiration involves five principal steps: glycolysis, pyruvate oxidation, TCA cycle, ETS and chemiosmotic ATP synthesis.
7. It yields inorganic end products.
8. Aerobic reparation takes place in cytoplasm and mitochondria.
1. It occurs in a few organisms (e.g. yeast, and some bacteria and parasitic worms).
2. Oxygen is not used.
3. It may or may not release CO2.
4. It does not produce water.
5. It releases only 5% of energy available in glucose as it (glucose) is not fully oxidized.
6. It includes just two steps: glycolysis and incomplete breakdown of pyruvate.
7. In yields organic end product with or without inorganic ones.
8. Anaerobic respiration takes place cytoplasm only.
